I want to know if which one is correct, for example I want to say: "The people who is in charge of this process" or "The people who are in charge of this process". I'm a bit confused because of the "who" word in the middle of the sentence.

In this case you would say "The people who are in charge of the process". Here, 'people' is plural, and refers to a group of more than one person, hence the use of 'are', rather than 'is'.
If just one person were in charge, you would say "The person who is in charge of the process".
ARE is the right one. basically because it refers to a group of individuals rather than a community labeled under a name.
